    The two biggest reasons to choose Castanea are the location, right in the centre of Gamla Stan and within walking distance of the city's biggest attractions, and the showers, which have heated floors and are superior to any others I have tried in a hostel...More

    Great hostel in the heart of old town Stockholm. Not far from Nobel museum and Royal palace, 20min walk from central station and 30min walk to vasa and ABBA museums. Stayed in 18 Bed dorm, really clean and friendly atmosphere.

    Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
    Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
    to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
    island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
    island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
    Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
    touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
    take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
    through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
